The balding mess of a human being revealed that he has always wanted to take part, despite having no interest in antiques.
He said: “I don’t really know what they (antiques) are. But, I love the show and fancy pitting my wits against house wives and pensioners.
Rooney has recently handed in a transfer request to Manchester United, who had the temerity to treat him exactly like any other player.
Of course, what makes the England striker distinct, is his complete lack of normal human emotions, which separate us from other less evolved and primate species.
Despite being linked with mega rich clubs such as PSG and Chelsea, Rooney insists that he hopes to be signed full time by Bargain Hunt.
He said: “I really feel they have what it takes to go all the way next season.”
In response to being told that Bargain Hunt is simply a TV programme for people who will achieve nothing in life, the United forward remained motionless while drooling excessively.
A source close to Rooney confirmed that his interest in day time TV goes deeper than most people think.
“When Wayne was growing up he was obsessed with Supermarket Sweep. In fact, there was a time when he only responded to the name Dale and questions about grocery shopping.”
A spokesperson from Manchester United made a statement regarding Rooney’s increasingly eccentric behaviour.
“We have always backed Wayne Rooney not matter what his extra curricular activities. If he wants to go on TV or continue to live in a house with no furniture, then we will support him until it is some other club’s problem.”
